Welcome to My Camp
May 31, 2013
One of the funniest, and bleakest, comedies of the season.
May 31, 2013
A British black comedy made in the spirit of "let's run with this demented premise till the tank is empty."
May 31, 2013
It's just not quite funny enough.
May 30, 2013
What starts out as a sunny, funny getaway soon turns hilariously dark, a fusion of tabloid sensationalism and social satire ... a royal hoot, the funniest British import since 'Shaun of the Dead.'
May 30, 2013
With a wink and a shrug, Sightseers shows us evil in all its banality.
May 30, 2013
A brilliant, deliciously wicked, and thoroughly enjoyable road film ...

Bloody good camping trip tale
May 17, 2013
It's funny and dark, but it's also unconventionally insightful and full of heart - or at least the hearts that are left beating.
May 16, 2013
Darkly funny as it is, the movie has undercurrents of genuine and very British weirdness.
May 16, 2013
Wheatley is strikingly effective in his manipulation of tone, establishing a queasy intimacy that only intensifies as the movie progresses.
May 15, 2013
Wheatley playfully bends genres in this romantic-comedy road movie so we never know what might happen next.
May 10, 2013
Director Ben Wheatley is capable of simultaneously embracing both the awkward comedy and creeping horror of Chris and Tina's voyage into darkness.
May 9, 2013
Sightseers homicidal holiday isn't just a pitch-black comedy made with skill, will and brains; it's also another demonstration that Wheatley is, to use an all-too-appropriate phrase, going places.
May 9, 2013
If you are in the mood for a bizarre tale of how to rid the British countryside of some of society's modern ills - litterbugs beware - "Sightseers" should do the trick.
May 9, 2013
His satirical stab at the traditionally quiet vision of proper England, pointed as much at the monarchy as it is at the Merchant-Ivory generation, is refreshing up to a point and almost always funny, but its sense of agitated hopelessness feels strained.
May 9, 2013
Director Ben Wheatley...has trumped Bobcat Goldthwaite's "God Bless America" with this British caravan serial killer comedy..an atypical relationship movie stuffed with nuggets of humor mined from both the characters and the landscape they travel through.
May 9, 2013
Sightseers is a jet-black comedy that understands exactly how absurdist it is, and its murders are always played for laughs-aided by their gruesome depictions.
May 9, 2013
Lowe and Oram have been living with these characters for years, and it shows. The acting is very funny and well-observed.
May 8, 2013
Shocking in all the good ways, supported by two fantastic performances from Alice Lowe and Steve Oram...Sightseers is a legitimate doozy.
